* ''VideoGame/DarkSoulsIII'': Aldrich was a human cleric who discovered one day that when he ate other people, he gained their power. He proceeded to eat so many people that he became a sludge-worm-monster thing, that nonetheless wielded tremendous magical power and had to be thrown into the First Flame itself to be destroyed (with the neat side effect of prolonging the Age of Fire). In this game, he's been resurrected, and has decided to expand his power further by ''eating the gods themselves''.

* Carmilla of the WhateleyUniverse absorbs all the knowledge of the people and things she eats. Since she's a baby Great Old One, she's probably eating their ''souls'' too.

* In the {{Gor}} series a standard practice for sleen or larl hunters is to eat the heart while it's still warm from its blood, for good luck. An additional thing with a sleen is to drink a cupped-handful of its blood, then take another handful and look in it to see a reflection of how you will die - of old age, in battle, or wasted away by disease.

** Also, there are dragons called Devourers, who like to feed on other dragons' [[SoulJar Hearts]]. Much like [[TabletopGame/VampireTheRequiem the vampires' Diaberie]], it's reviled by Oroboroi society (even ''more so'', in fact, since they are a DyingRace and Hearts are ''not'' a renewable ressource) and comes with [[BodyHorror very nasty side effects]]...

* ''TabletopGame/DragonTheEmbers'':
** This is how [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Oroboroi]] reproduce; since they lost the ability to procreate the natural way a long time ago, they instead create new dragons by feeding their [[SoulJar Heart]] to a human whenever they feel like they have lived long enough. This results in the Heart's owner dying and the human becoming a new dragon.

* Kleptocnidae. Hydra got stinging cells with enough poison to stun a little fish. A flatworm eats hydra, assimilates stinging caps without discharge and not digests them, but incorporates as is. Then a predator tries to eat such a flatworm and finds out it hurts a lot. This approach saw a lot of use for stinging [[http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/site/accounts/information/Cnidaria.html cnidarians]] from hydra to jellyfish and a variety of eaters up to slugs adding more "zap" to their skin or transferring kleptocnidae into their tentacles to use more offensively.
